Alice Jarry, Marie-Pier Boucher, Samuel Bianchini, Brice Ammar-Khodja, Alexandra Bachmayer, Vanessa Mardirossian and Philippe Vandal present a video of Fossilation at Mutek Festival.
Presented at Mutek, the video of Fossilation features the bioplastic membrane and the apparatus that harvests the residual energy of the Pompidou Centre to interact with light. Part of the Membrane en action research-creation project (SSHRC), the artwork was realized by Brice Ammar-Khodja, Alexandra Bachmayer, Samuel Bianchini, Marie-Pier Boucher, Didier Bouchon, Maria Chekhanovich, Matthew Halpenny, Alice Jarry, Raphaëlle Kerbrat, Annie Leuridan, Vanessa Mardirossian, Asa Perlman, Philippe Vandal, Lucile Vareilles.

Fossilisation combines design, art, techno sciences, and media studies. It was co-developed as part of an international collaboration between three research-creation teams (Concordia University, Montreal; EnsadLab - the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs laboratory – Université PSL; University of Toronto Mississauga).
